Van Jones Resigns - Does it Matter?
Last night, in the middle of the night, racist, anti-American, pro-cop killer, avowed Communist Van Jones resigned as the Obama administration's Green Jobs Czar. So what? I can't get excited about this news for a couple reasons:
1. He's just one of many ill-considered appointees. I know the old lawyer joke "What do you call a bus of lawyers going off a cliff? A good start." However, that's small consolation.
2. More importantly, his replacement will be chosen by the same fools who selected him. Keep in mind he was hired either by someone too incompetent to do a Google search or someone who knew what a loon he is and didn't care.
One positive to come from Van Jones' appointment is it should cause congress to more aggressively look at the whole business of appointing all these czar's. What is the pay level for a czar? What are the qualifications necessary to be a czar? What authority does a czar have?
Lastly, consider how a similarly disgusting appointee by a Republican president would have been covered by our media. If we had an honest and unbiased media President Obama would face constant questioning about why this character wasn't properly vetted or why he was hired if he was actually vetted.
